Posted on May 27, 2020 at 10:56 AM by John Guccione

The below update provides a forecast of construction operations planned for the week of May 26, 2020. Please note that this forecast is subject to change due to weather.


Dartmouth Ave 
(Wilmot To Mallard.Including Pembroke and Circle Courts
Beginning on Thursday, May 28, 2020 and continuing through the end of the week, pavement grinding and subbase preparation will begin within the project limits. During this operation, the contractor will be removing the entire roadway pavement.
ORANGE highlighted area  
Pavement grinding and removal operations will include heavy truck traffic and may result in impacts to driveways while the pavement is being removed directly in front of a driveway. However, once grinding/removal is completed, the contractor will install stone access ramps that will allow access to all driveways. These ramps will remain in place until the following week’s pavement operations. 


Knollwood Rd (Warwick to Margate) plus Westgate
Project completed.   Only punch list items remain.  

Knollwood Rd 
(Margate to Kingston) plus Margate Terrace 
Project completed.   Only punch list items remain.  

Linden Ave (Stratford to Chestnut)
Underground work at this location was so minimal, that it was completed on May 26, 2020 (due to contractor availability).  Only minor adjustments to underground structures remain and will be performed previous to pavement removal.

Curb removal and replacement is planned along the northern portion of Linden Ave for next Thursday and Friday.   Upon completing the north side curb, the contractor will return the following week to remove and replace the south side.  Additional notice will proceed any driveway access impacts.

The Village’s infrastructure construction projects fit under an exemption per the Governor’s Stay at Home order. Outdoor activities, like construction projects, generally will provide for good social distancing that poses little risk of transmission, but it still is important to ensure the ability to wash or sanitize hands and take other precautions. Village and contractor personnel will continue to practice safe social distancing and sanitation efforts during the construction.

If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at
